The Talk:

Apache Flink is the exciting newcomer in the Big Data space, which integrates batch and stream processing in a novel way. Join us in exploring Apache Flink and its architecture, internals, and its data and programming models. We explore its features for stream processing and compare it to Apache Spark and Apache Beam. You will see Flink’s Scala APIs in action as we code and run a selected set of examples that nicely illustrate its features.
